    Hi all,
    Just about to send my original Samsung Galaxy Nexus into retirement and buy a second hand Nexus 5X for a fairly good price for it's details. What I would like to know is, can I change the colour of the phone? I mean, that the one I am about to purchase is Ice Blue but would have preferred the carbon effect one.
    Thanks.

    From the pictures online it looks like the color is simply the back panel which can be replaced without too much problem.

    At about a minute in they show the back cover coming off.



    The part costs ~$20.

    Thanks for the replies. I couldn't understand why the prices were so different due to the various colours! If it's no problem changing the cover, I suppose I could buy one and just buy the coloured cover of my choice.

    Probably supply and demand. .. If they are stuck with a large pile of less popular colours they have to get rid of them somehow.
